---------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a Near Fine dustjacket, signed and inscribed by Roberts in year of publication, ---"The year is 2050. The US is by now a global empire, sealed off from an outside world that has been reduced to a series of wars against several Chinese factions. America is little more than a wasteland. The great cities have disintegrated into memories of a bygone glory. New York has become a tourist haunt and theme park. Washington is the hub for central command operations, and only those on official business ever visit the capital. The president and Vice President, along with the Secretaries of State and Defense, are no longer identified for reasons of national security. There is no sense of the past. History, as we know it, ceases to exist. It is in this grim and terrifying landscape that we find David Leverett, a former government advisor and architect of America’s twentieth century postwar forgeign policy. Having just reached his one hundredth birthday, Leverett confronts his past, chronicling his role in the evolution of the American empire, from the end of the Carter era, to the glory years of the Reagan administration, and finally to the solidification of America’s foreign policy of world domination under the influence of corporations, think tanks and lobbies of the two Bush administrations. Both a testament to and a lament for the country he served, Leverett exposes the backroom politics and players that engineered the destruction of the United States and its rebirth as US-Global, a paranoid super-state and scientific dictatorship with no known centre of power. Bestselling author Paul William Roberts draws on real events and real people, chronicling humanity’s trek toward a dystopian future under the influence of a corrupt American empire. Sweeping in scope and controversial in subject matter, Homeland is Roberts’ deeply disturbing vision of the world to come"---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and not a generic photo ///SIGNED///
